Bringing Math to Life for Thousands of Students

Bottge Profile PhotoDr. Brian Bottge is known for his research in teaching math to struggling students — and for helping teachers put the findings into action.

Over the past 20 years, the Institute of Education Sciences (research and evaluation arm of the U.S. Department of Education), has awarded Bottge three four-year research grants (Goals 2,3,5) that total nearly $5 million.

His development of the teaching method called Enhanced Anchored Instruction (EAI) has helped bridge the gap between university-level research and practice, bringing math to life for thousands of students. Recently. IES selected EAI as one of four math interventions eligible for replication in the upcoming IES grant competition.
